Going Green: Natural Skincare from iLA. Skincare Never Smelled, Felt or Worked So Well!
“Going green” doesn’t mean that you have to lower your standards when it comes to products. If you know where to look, you can find luxury products that are eco-friendly, organic and highly effective– particularly when it comes to skincare!
iLa isn’t a new line but it might be new to you. It’s so heavenly that I have had trouble writing about because I have to be able to talk about it without sounding goofy.
Found at some of the most exclusive spas and stores around the globe, you can experience a near-transcendental experience with this line via a facial, body treatment or merely by purchasing products for home use.
Four Seasons Beverly Hills Spa.
No lie!! This is one of the most incredible skincare lines I have ever seen.
The aesthete behind the line is really fabulous– beyond organic. The name is Sanskrit and it means ‘earth’–the flow, refreshmentn and source of all well-being. iLA is known as a holy place.
ila’s vocation is to bring purity, energy and balance into your life via its’ luxurious skincare products that work on a number of different levels: improving natural beauty through the health and vitality of the skin; increasing well-being through the transforming effects of energy healing; and to create a greater sense of inner serenity.(and the line does that in spades based on merely the first whiff of the gorgeous aromas)
Beyond Organic is their mantra and ila’s skincare range is completely free from synthetic chemicals. It contains a rare level of organic purity which is achieved by sourcing the finest ingredients directly from local producers who cultivate and harvest the raw ingredients in harmony with nature. ila’s artisan skincare products are hand blended in a consciously created environment of peace and purity in the heart of the English countryside, to ensure that the finished holistic products contain all the exquisitely pure energy from nature.
These products– of which I got to try two– are beyond organic, they are sinfully delicious (don’t eat them), rich, intoxicating and your skin, body, mind and soul will soak up all the benefits from the ingredients.
This Face Oil has been called ‘little miracle’. Your skin will rediscover its natural bloom and you will notice a healthy glow to your face. By revitalising skin at a deep level, it nourishes and heals. It protects against the sun’s rays and also works beautifully under make-up.
After cleansing and toning your face, smooth a few drops (no more than 5) into your skin, allowing the scent to work on your senses. Massage gently with brushing strokes over face and neck.
The essential oil of damascena rose otto is the most precious for women as it is deeply regenerative and nourishing to the skin’s cells as well as bringing glowing radiance. Argan oil and rosehip seed oil are high in anti-oxidants and fatty acids to fight wrinkles and help skin cells to regenerate.
This is one product I used and hoard– because it’s so precious. 1) the fragrance is killer– it’s so gorgeous and 2) this requires less than 5 drops (really) because if you emulsify it (the fancy word for rubbing across tips of fingers) and stroke it on quickly, it will be absorbed so fast that you won’t “feel” oily. It’s just amazingly on what it does for your skin.
You won’t see results overnight– but you will feel results overnight. Your body/mind/soul will know something healthy and relaxing has been applied. It’s absolutely genius as a product and the skin just starts perking up the longer you use it. It’s not inexpensive however it’s available at Barneys and you can get this and by the drop or 3.. it’s very cost effective– because it really does work. Find this product in Barneys stores but not online or at spiritbeautylounge.com . it’s a bit pricey at $110.00 but it really does last a long time and it’s less expensive than some of the La Mer, Chanel and other products.
The other product I was able to try is a body oil product.
BODY OIL FOR VITAL ENERGY
This is another amazing product. It soaks right into your skin. It can be used in the bath but don’t dump a ton into the bath water. A little goes a long way.
This oil helps you deal with the stresses and strains of everyday life by restoring natural energy to your body. Your senses will respond to the exquisite scent of the essential oils, which will revitalise your body’s bio-energy field. Your spirits will be raised, and your body will be infused with vital energy.
First you should bathe. Then when the skin is still damp, you should smooth the oil gently into your skin. Body Oil nourishes and stimulates the circulation as well as the skin. Your body will feel recharged.
This gorgeous-smelling product soaks in fast into your skin. It’s only $68.00 but use it sparingly. It’s really quite potent!
